Janet Jackson Samples Daft Punk

"Daftendirekt," to be exact. The result of her daring innovation? Well, Discipline's "So Much Betta" basically sounds like the Chipmunks covering "Milkshake" ... which is to say it sounds awesome. But really, how much more Daft sampling can we take? Even will.i.am sampled them, though if you remember, the Robots put the kibosh on that rhymery, so he was forced to "leak" the tune. No worries, will, you'd be be better off "sampling" a rhyming dictionary. - Source

Mobius Band Cover Daft Punk, Make Your Valentine's Day Mix Easier

Yes, It's almost Valentine's Day. In that spirit, we've given Mobius Band plenty of love and they've finally returned the favor, the teases. We knew the Brooklyn/Massachusetts-trio could turn a cover the moment they tackled Radiohead for OKX. Now, taking a page from Kanye's book, the lads are covering Daft Punk. Their decidedly less robotic take on "Digital Love" is part of their Love Will Reign Supreme EP, which you'll be able to download tomorrow for free at the band's site. For now, the six-song tracklist and album art, plus "Digital Love" and tour dates after the jump. As far as that photo, looks like "Digital Love" of some sort, but let's hope you spend your V-Day more excitingly than a little liquor in front of the tele.- Source
